you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style hearings on the attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senat
in the republican party. but starting with john mccain in 2008, i'm not suggesting john mccain was a racist, but john mccain had no association with black people whatsoever. pretty much like mitt romney this year. i know they always find some black people to trot out and say yes, this is somebody i know, but the fact of the matter is if you look at his career, you look at the aides that he had when he was a senator, all of the things in terms of his history and john mccain's family comes from mississippi, he had no association with black people whatsoever. when john mccain ran for the presidency in 2008, black people were not even on his radar. after president obama got elected, there was a belief -- and i would argue a not necessarily true belief among republicans that the african- american vote was no longer -- was basically off limits, that it was not possible to appeal to african-americans. that was a mistake. i believe that the rise of a lot of publicly expressed racist sentiments and the attitudes that go with them came from the fact that a lot of republicans all of a sudden decided t
on the epic throwdown with john mccain. plus the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senator. >> yes, you did. >> heidi highcamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >> good to you have with us tonight. thanks for watching. absence of arrogance. president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first new conference since winning the president once again pipts the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure for reelection. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. if there was one thing that everybody understood was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced
, but it sounded condescending. it is like, why are you picking on a girl? he implied john mccain was a coward for physical picking on her when we know that john mccain is anything but a coward. obama is himself hiding behind the skirt of this woman at this time to deflect from the real tragedy and cover up what happened in benghazi. >> seriously strong words for mccain. to say he is incompetent or a cover up, that's amazing. and why can't it be both? >> i cooperate say it better, but if you look at it, is he saying she was a puppet and she was put on television all day every day over the course of the weekend after this attack just for the talking points? that's what we are lead to believe at this point. should she continue in a lull? should she be so privileged to hold that role? >> to put her as the secretary of state -- by the way, how do you think john carrie feels? he is so controversy they still don't pick him. >> he said ambassador rice when she went on these shows she gave basically her understanding of the talent. she said what the intelligence community has been telling them. is tha
more in this hour for our audience as well. up next, senator john mccain missed a briefing on the benghazi attack while holding a news conference. well, he slammed the president and susan rice over her potential nomination that doesn't exist at this point for secretary of state. meanwhile, mccain is now being criticized for slamming ambassador rice but supporting secretary of state condoleezza rice, despite the intelligence failures under her watch. >> that was an entirely different situation. >> plus, smackdown from the right. governor bobby jindal leads the republican backlash against mitt romney's excuse for not winning. why romney's claim of the president's, quote, gifts to blacks, latinos, women and young voters, might be an official hat hash tag fail. >> i don't think that represents where we are as a party and going as a party. >> new comments from the rnc about why romney really lost. we have new information from their official report, and guess what it's missing? the word "gifts." join our conversation on twitter. you can find us @tamronhall a and @newsnation. ♪
his boxing gloves just yet. he took jabs from republicans led by john mccain and lindsay graham. they're up in arms about potential appointment of susan rice to secretary of state because of the fallout of the benghazi attacks. john mccain called those attacks the president's watergate and this morning he said rice mishandle the administration's respond. >> she's not qualified. anyone who goes on national television in defiance of the facts five days later we're all responsible for what we say and what we do. >> jennifer: he just said she's not qualified. not qualified. susan rice. the stanford phi beta cappa scholar, u.n. ambassador, not qualified. john mccain doubled down on his remarks with john carl. >> is she effectively disqualified from being secretary of state. you would oppose her nomination? >> yes. >> and we're talking filibuster, do whatever you could to block it. >> yes. >> jennifer: of course he would filibuster, in other words stall in the appointment dies. that's filibuster is what happened throughout president obama's term allowing his appointments to languish. in fac
in the republican party, known. i'm not suggesting that john mccain was a racist but john mccain had no association of black people whatsoever. the press like mitt romney this year. i know they always try out some black people that facility i know. and his age career he had with his ascent toward all the things in terms of his history and john mccain's family comes from mississippi by john mccain had no association with black people whatsoever. so when he ran for the presidency in 2008, black people were not even on a radar. at the present obama got elected, could there isn't a not necessarily true belief by republicans that the african- american vote was no longer -- was basically off-limits. i believe the rise of publicly- expressed racist sentiments and the attitudes that go with them came from the fact that a lot of republicans decided black people are off limits. so we don't have to appeal to black people. karl rove into a dozen forethought," i know black people and i know there are lettuce. i know they don't like the marriage. let's go to ohio and go to churches and african-american leaders a
of 1988, john mccain would have defeated barack obama. the facts are there. if people turn out, if minority voters turnout, republicans have a disadvantage to start with. latino vote, it was just huge. you look at the states, look at florida, colorado, you look at nevada, you could even argue iowa, but state after state, the latino vote, if you take it out, the democrats would have lost, even in florida, it was 61-39 including the cubans. cuban-americans are not no longer the majority in florida among latinos, but the younger generations of cuban-americans vote like puerto rican or dominican voters, not the anti-castro parents and grandparents. asian-americans, that was the biggest shift. 75-25 for obama. i remember covering the 2000 race. gore and bush. i think bush won the asian-american vote before september 11th, asian-american was a swing vote leaning republican. yesterday, it was 3-to-1 democratic. urban-rural, it's -- mirror images. it's roughly 60-40, and demographically, which areas are growing, the urban areas or rural america? you wouldn't want to bet on rural americ
of months ago, out of 11 swing states, republicans carried one. he basically one what john mccain won, plus indiana, which nobody considers a swing state, plus north carolina. you go one out of 11, then you have the senate tossup. republicans lost nine out of 10. i think senator cornyn and all the folks -- one of the more talented campaign committees i have ever seen. two cycles in a row, they have had the worst loss. when your party nominate people that are so exotic that they have little or no chance of winning general elections, that ought to be very winnable, that is not something campaign committee can do anything about. you have party bosses from washington dictating who are candidates are going to be, or do you allow yourself the diversity of a bunch of wackos? >> a whole bunch of these republican governors were elected in 2010, which was against barack obama, the stimulus, the takeovers. no matter how partisan the state, they will send the opposite party to the state mansion, but they will not send them to d.c. even bob ehrlich one in maryland, and democrats get elected governor --
to be their leader? guest: it is good to end on a loaded question. let me say first that john mccain, who was a great senator, and who was the original maverick and had an independent image, i think he had a very difficult time running into thousand eight following eight years of george w. bush. it was likely time for a democratic president to win so i think john mccain had a hard assignment. with respect to the question you asked, i would say that america elected an african-american, barack obama, and after one of the most intense and expensive and bitter campaigns of all time, reelected him. i would say that is a pretty strong statement of respect for him. some people have said to mate there will be a racial vote in this election. i think it is quite likely that the people who voted against barack obama would have voted against a democratic. host: have been talking with i read shapiro, the author of "the last great senate." thank you very much for being on the program today. guest: thank you for the opportunity to come in. host: the headline in this morning's paper says pot vote raises possibility
to national security, like senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham. however, will not necessarily heard about point the president say -- no way is this going to happen. was for indication that it is one area where, although there's a lot of gridlock here, both parties to agree on this one point, that this should not happen. host: next caller, bob on our line for republicans, new jersey. caller: i have two comments. one is, in this a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. and i am wondering if the tax cuts expire, does that mean that the 47% better not paying taxes will start paying taxes? if that is the case, let us go for it. it is time people get into the game, even if it is $5 a year. something. i will take your comments off air. host: my question was going to become a what does it mean for him? that goes to the question of how much could this mean not just for everyone, but how much it means on a personal level. we will ask other callers there. what to do think about his proposal that we drive off the cliff? caller: i think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a poss
the edges. boy, running against and john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in those states. he did well in iowa. he overperformed. >> i'm guessing it is bigger in 2012 than in 2008. >> at the performance is a little bit overstated. dig into the data. it is not quite impressive as the polls might have suggested. i had to brag a little bit. i was having a fierce twitter debate over the nature of ohio. nate's model has predicted in this election and had a 49.6% chance to beat ohio in the electoral vote. the tipping state was colorado. where did romney's 47% remarks get him? 47% of the vote. >> we talk about how non-whites are growing, particularly among latinos. unions are shrinking. for the 6% of voters were from the union households. this ticket was only 18 percent. i do think that you are right. it will be more about the sun belt than the rest. >> non college white union members. this is pretty striking. >> let's have another question. in the front. >> you spoke about the long-term trends of declining voter turnout and increased polarization and the emotionalism of v
. >> bill: you think they were more enthusiastic for john mccain. >> in some case, yes. he had been around a lot long. he also had the military. do you know in virginia romney and barack obama split the active military vote? now, how do you explain that? >> bill: i don't. i can't explain it at all. the things that i can can explain are the entitlement culture it, obviously going to vote for president obama. if you are on the other end of that. obviously. but, i can't explain, for example, single women other than the abortion issue i just can't imagine it's driving those numbers to that extent. why do single women not like the republic party for what reason. >> they haven't liked it for 15 or 20 years. >> bill: married women do. single women don't. explain it to me. >> nothing the republic party put forward that attract single women. >> bill: that's not. >> tell me what it is. >> bill: that's oversimplyification. have you got two women. both 32 years old. one single, one is married. the married one statistically likes the republicans and the single one doesn't. why? >> why because they thin
votes are clustered in those big metropolitan areas. john mccain in 2008, excuse me, barack obama in 2008 won the 28 congressional districts with 80% of the vote or more and john mccain ten by that margin. that gives democrats a lot of votes in the big states, but it also means that there's not that many democrats in the chase and districts. this time obama carried the same number of states with that percentage and romney may have gotten that percentage in one or two districts in utah. maybe it's time for political scientists and abundance to rule out another rule about locks, who has a lot on which part of the government before that rule becomes obsolete. thank you. >> thank you. now tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for the republicans is in any case with going through the stages of grief, first its bid to be engaged in denial and that is what you saw with the "the washington times" piece that was read today. it's understandable. it's the human response, but it would be very smart for the republicans to get further along in those stages and not stay i
the democratic -- demographic reason is democratic votes are clustered in the big metropolitan areas. john mccain -- excuse me, barack obama in 208120 congressional bishops with 80% of vote more. john mccain 10 by the margin. against democrats a lot of votes in those big states, but it also means there's not that many democrats into chasing districts. this time obama probably cared about the same number of states with a percentage. romney may have gotten that percentage and where to districts in utah. so maybe it's time for a political scientist and as political pundits to roll out another go about ochs, who has a lock on which part of the government before that will, too, becomes obsolete. thank you. >> now and it will tell us about the republican party. >> i think the temptation for republicans, going through any case, is going to be engaging in denial. and that's what you saw with the "washington times" piece that karlyn today. it's understandable. it's the human response. but it would be very smart for the publicans to get farther along from those stages and not stay in the denial stage very
% of those who identified as independents to john mccain's 40%. this was a group were focused on. the candidates were trying to reach those independents. you're saying not all the independents are truly independent? guest: they mean a lot of things. some people mean, i really go back and forth, sometimes i vote democratic, republican. that is one group. other people meehan i consistently vote for one party or the other, but i do not think of myself as a member of that party. you really have to distinguish between help people identify themselves, and how people actually vote, which is not the same thing. host: moses is from new york and the democratic line. caller: i want to comment on the latino vote. i know you had a guest before. how latinos perceive romney as being an interventionist .andidate invading countries, like the dominican republic and panama latinos do not consider socialism as evil. if you hear comments from right wing in radio hosts and fox news, socialism is considered evil. in america, with fidel castro, it is very popular -- host: were you expecting the high tur
john mccain. >> it is because of the moderate label he was tagged with. it was because white women in our area watched those commercials. in cuyahoga county, they registered 140,000 more traditional democratic voters. there were prosirchghts in kihoch hoga that voted 114-3 for obam a. precincts in cincinnati, 328-1 for obama. >> sean: it was like two states. >> if the same number of african-americans in ohio voted in 2012 and 2008, romney would have won the state. >> sean: it was so close, virginia, ohio, florida. there have to be adjustments. but you don't compromise your principles. they have to do a better job of messaging. it has to be the right candidate and a united party. >> i dolled one thing. abortion -- right to life. it is hispanic issues, getting on the ballot-- >>> but we can't haved to akin say something as dumb as he did. >> sean: billy can you thinkham, thanks for the full report. >> thank you. >> sean: i have a message for the g.o.p. tonight. we will see and check in with eric bowling and kimberly guilfoyle. and then, we weren't even close to sorting through bengha
. >> after the 2008 election a lot that said john mccain was the wrong person to nominate. back then mitt romney was the more conservative alternative and, again, in 2008, some say mitt romney was too moderate. seems year after year or cycle after cycle this happens, what will be enough to change it? a loss isn't doing it for the republican party. >> they're not going to learn that lesson that quickly. i was there in iowa and south carolina, people don't like him. you don't get somebody who doesn't say i don't like 47% of the population. what the republican party needs is someone who can articulate their values but in a way that's not offensive. im pro life, i am not going to spend my entire administration working on that. i don't want illegals coming into this country. we're not going to tell people to self-deport. not offend 90% of the population and that's what they need to do. >> professor jason johnson professor in ohio, thank you very much. >> thank you, always a pleasure. >>> when president obama deals with china in the future, he'll most likely go toe-to toe with this man. we'll t
is another one. the new senator from arizona worked on this issue in the past. then there is john mccain. everything has changed since the election. it was politically not viable and now it has become politically viable. host: this comment by grover norquist from a cbs news story. host: this from nbc news, i apologize. from nebraska.sc caller: thank you for taking my call. latinos when for obama primarily for the immigration issue. you do not think that is narrow minded or the might be other issues that latinos are focusing in. if you would want to discuss those. guest: that is an excellent question. polling shows that what voters care for our jobs and the economy. immigration is either number two or number 3 on their list of things that they care about. it is much higher in places like arizona. it is the number two issue among hispanics. my sense has been that i do not think hispanics always want to be associated with immigration. it is difficult to separate the immigration conversation from them because it is so integral to their lives. 60% of hispanic voters know somebody personally t
conservatives. eventually, truth will out. in 2008, you could have run carrot top in a thong against john mccain and he probably would have won. the fact that barack obama won after all the misinformation and lying, makes me proud that the americans saw through the lies. people stood in line for hours. >> the jeep ads backfired. >> stephanie: this is going to be the difference in the conservative and liberal media. they're going to tell you you're stupid and lazy. we're going to tell you you're smart and pretty and we love you. >> oh, god! >> stephanie: i just, i'm saying i think people would rather listen to a happy lappie message. >> that's why i like listening to your show. i don't listen to them, they're not entertaining. >> stephanie: john fugelsang is saying you're wicked smart and startlingly beautiful. >> too bad we're not backstage in a dressing room. >> he likes to kiss himself. >> preparing for shows is what i meant to say. >> stephanie: by the way john fugelsang threw up just before the show and still knocked them dad, looking beautiful. still knocked it out of the park. see you tomo
. >> stephanie: john mccain -- he is such a angry bitter little elf about losing. there was no viable military option to deflect sporadic attacks in a city full of people sympathetic to the us. really, you are going to drop a bomb -- >> well, in rambo what happened was -- >> stephanie: okay. armed drones were not in the area, air strikes without intelligence posed a huge risk of killing americans and civilians. last week the cia managers told officials benghazi not to go to the aid -- oh, they gave a stand-down order? >> no. [ buzzer ] >> stephanie: when the annex itself was under attack officials refused to pass along request for military assistance and one of the officers had laser sited pointing at the attackers. they responded actually within 25 minutes, jim. >> uh-huh. >> stephanie: this is just a completely -- >> they had sharks with laser beams -- >> it's a gish-gallop. >> stephanie: yeah. the attack was over before the forces could be employed. there were no orders to anybody to standown. and another senior intelligence official, armed droneings were not near
did in getting voters to the polls. and if i got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio still came within two points. the technology included the so-called orca system. many of you have read about that in the last couple of days, which was the republican get out the vote technology to ensure that we were targeting people getting to the polls. i'm told on election day actually got so many hits around the country as it should have from people saying this person voted this person didn't vote, they thought it was under attack and close down. so for those of you here from again detect elegies field and with interest in politics, we republicans want to talk to you. we need some help. the democratic system i think is called gordon was actually quite effective at mike retargeting. i heard one this morning it was. somebody get the call who is a democrat, who is in law school and police chief, we see you have voted. the information is publicly available. it's at 2:00 on election day, but your sister at tulane has not voted. could you call her? that is the level at which they were dealing, wh
, they did a better job than we did getting their voters to the polls. mitt romney got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio and still came within two points. the technology included so-called orca system. some of you maybe read about that in the last couple days which was the republican get-out-the-vote technology to insure that we were targeting people getting to the polls. it imploded on election day. it got so many hits from around the country as it should have saying gee this person voted. this person didn't vote. target calls. we thought it was under attack and closed down. so for those of you here from, again, the technology field and with interest in politics, we republicans want to talk to you. [laughter] we need some help. the democrats system i think is called gorton was quite effective at microtargeting. i heard a lot of anecdotes. i heard one this morning that you will love. someone gets a call a democrat in law school. gee, we see you voted. by the way this information is publicly voted. it is at 2:00 on election, but your sister at tulane has not voted, could you call her? that
, it cost us the election. >> it absolutely cost you the election. >> i can't believe if we had john mccain's percentage of latino voters. >> is it not a problem for the republican party in that the loudest voices within, if you want to call it the framework of the republican party, are voices on the radio or on tv had it comes to issues that affect that specific aspect of our population, build a wall. self-deport. get buses. get them out of the country. is that not a huge problem? >> you know, it's a huge problem if your elected leaders ckowtow to them. >> it's also why you take hits and get called names. >> i got 80% of the vote in the republican primary. anybody that ever took that attack against me when i was in office got rolled over, got crushed because you know what? you can take it to the people. and if you believe what you believe, they'll listen to talk radio. they'll watch certain stations. but at the end of the day, if the leaders have the guts to do what's in the best interests -- and mike, this is a great point, and this is where the party needs to go as they move forward. lea
dole wasn't the greatest candidate in 1996. and john mccain wasn't the greatest candidate in 2008. republicans still figured out how to win some senate seats that year. this year the republican brand was ravaged. and they paid for it whether they were moderates like tommy thompson, whether they were tea partiers, like the two whose names i never have to mention again, whether it was self-funding candidates like linda mcmahon, they all got slaughtered. >> big goose egg. >> their record in the dozen or so competitive senate races was as bad as mitt romney's was in the nine battleground states. i mean, they won about one or two of the really competitive races. >> and you know what john cornyn could have done about that, running the republican senatorial committee? nothing. nothing. because we so savaged our brand through the primary process. you know, when one week you had herman cain leading the field, sarah palin would be leading the field, rick perry would be leading the field, these people that had a hard time communicating on television that seemed to be marginal political figur
the edges. and maybe running against john mccain in 2008, barack obama did well among those groups in the other states and extremely well in wisconsin and iowa over performing even by the margin in the change of the electorate that he did in 2012. so, -- >> i'm guessing the delta of between the working class whites and nationally was bigger and 12 than 08. this and i think obama's performance in the west velte is a little bit overstated by the election polls and once you begin to the the that it isn't quite as expected as the pre-election polls might have suggested. i have to drag a little but i was kind of falling asleep on the decision desk in new york and a fierce twitter debate about the nature of the early turnout data in ohio and in a ohio a closer state than the poles were giving him credit for and the model projected the tipping point stayed in this election had a 39 wind 6% chance of being ohio and actually ohio was still more than the national average. the tipping point once again was colorado. one other than come the attacks that you referred to on absolutely true what d
